You've got to be kidding...

If anything, PvP rewards should only be cosmetic. Gear progression already gives people too much of an advantage.

Khaine's Wrath? Cannot remember if thats the area or not but same mechanic from Warhammer Online. A handful of people liked it. Blizzard poached their content from good MMO's. Don't poach from dead MMO's.

Oh yeah because a new operation, new warzone, and new dailies to grind is totally the new content we were hoping for. How about a new planet or maybe continuation of the player story?

And I'm guessing you don't know EA very well. Their usual practice is release new flashy eye-candy before fixing what they already have, but most of time their "new stuff" just breaks what WAS working or makes what's already broken even worse.
Hey, I understand. I just find it annoying that people seem to complain about everything. From my personal experience (and this is just me) I have encountered no bugs that have hindered by gameplay - in fact I haven't really encountered any at all.

And while you can bash BioWare about making too many promises. So far they have delivered, by the end of this year they have promised, a new warzone, new operation, new daily area, new companion, new planet, and new playable species. So far they have delivered have they not? All they haven't given us that they've promised is a new planet and new playable speices, but no doubt thats in the works. And the year aint up.

Can't wait to have this new wz hit live server !

I've seen a few videos on YouTube (from PTS) and it indeed looks very promising, plus the exotic Asation/Gree like setting looks really nice.

Thanks !

It was "Khaine's Embrace", and then it didn't have the several twists this new wz will have, with the orbs and such...
And dead or not : many of Warhammer Online battlegrounds were really really nice and fun.

Hopefully SWTOR will have variations of "Tor Anroc" or "Phoenix gates" one day too !!!

Well they fixed some of the lag issues with Open World PvP (had 30 people fighting Outlaw's den with zero lag when HK-51 came out). So now all they need to do is bring back mercenary comms

I smell some Khaine's Embrace Sounds fun, I just hope it's not mechanically overloaded with all those elements.

Now we just need a good ol' "just bash your noggins around a central target" like WAR's Caledor Woods
